've always expected people would get in the united states of america. that only comes from the private sector. that's where, i think, the romney approach, people will find to be the right one. >> this market has been rallying. of course, it seems to be working in obama's favor, even though it's probably has a lot more to do with the central bank and all of the easing out there than it does to the policies. is there any reason to believe that if this president is re-elected, then he moves to the center that, he does the policies that you're talking about that romney, of course, has been leading with? >> i think that's been my greatest disappointment, that we have not seen this government move more to a centerous approach to move the country forward. there were numerous opportunities to do that. i just don't think it aligns with where the president would like to take the country. there's one approach that says static pie, let's figure out how to split it up. that's the approach that's being taken. when they say we're all in this together, we're all in this together, but we're going to take from
to happen in the united states? people just want certainty, particularly at a time like this when china is in a recession. >> that is exactly what i'm talking about in my observation coming up. people are not going to add heads to the payroll if you don't know what your tax bill is going to look like. >> no way. you're kidding yourself. >> it's on congress, then. we need fiscal policy. >> we need leadership. we need a marshall plan. we need a grand plan that first starts with today's reality before you try to go to tomorrow. >> what do you think about the election? do you think the election changes this? does that bring us clarity? >> well, that's a tough one. i mean, it's not sure. because the people that running for office, are they going to actually operate, or is it just going to be what they do with a speech, right? what really counts is not the speech but what you do in between the speech. >> the truth is, we may not get the clarity because they're not dealing with the issues like the fiscal cliff until after the election. so we won't know tax rates. we won't know the regulatory e
to boycott all the unilateral actions of people from another part of the world? the united states is not very popular in the middle east right now. i don't know if you doe know that. it's not popular at all. everything that's been talked about, everything that's been done has not moved us forward. if anything, it's moved us backward because there is just not a sense of well-being in the relationship. oil being part of it but other issues also enter into it. >> and what's your take on the upcoming election, the presidential election. how does that skew things? >> you know, i don't want to get out of my depth here. i'm not a politician. i am a businessperson. but i would say this. and i'll stick to energy. there is no energy plan in the obama administration. i've been saying that for years. they talk words, rhetoric. rhetoric is not a plan. a plan has accountabilities, actions, milestones and real numbers. the romney announcement is also not a plan. it's a good strategic intent. it's inclined towards americans taking care of america. i certainly support that notion, but i'm still waiting to see
you cannot get any yield. everyone is chasing yield. you can't get it from the united states government. they'll pay you nothing. people are going say, wait a minute, now i have to pay 36% and i have risk in the marketplace. these are a lot of big issues. >> i know you meant governor romney. >> let me apologize. >> do you think we go to the election and are in standstill mode until then? once we get the clarity of who's in the white house, what's your expectation? >> i do. i don't anticipate a lot. i know people are talking about that we'll see more in the early parts of november because of the different things with the defense department and where they're going to be at as far as cuts go. we'll get an indication what's going to happen. i think we'll have to wait until the election is over and done with and we'll get clarity for the future of the markets. >> i really like the fact you're looking at this whole dividend issue. we've been talking about the fiscal cliff a lot on this program. do you really think these guys are going to allow dif vidend taxes to go to 43%? >> they
